It is no secret that some medications previously thought to be safe have been exposed as remarkably dangerous over time. If you believe you have experienced a new or worsened health condition as the result of medicine you have been taking, you may be eligible to file a dangerous drug claim. It is not uncommon for a person to realize they are symptomatic or have developed a health condition, only to do a little research and discover that a drug they have taken is already facing a lawsuit over its negative effects. If you or a loved one were injured by a potentially dangerous drug, reach out to a product liability attorney to discuss your options for physical and financial recovery.
If you believe a medicine you are taking might be dangerous, do not throw it away. It is important to maintain possession of the medicine itself as well as the packaging it came in if at all possible. This will serve as proof that you took the drug in question, and also serves an important role in the investigation process a product liability attorney will need to conduct.
Prioritizing your health is the first step to recovery in any situation in which a patient might have suffered adverse health effects from taking a dangerous drug. It is important to talk to your doctor about the symptoms you are experiencing, and if possible see if they can switch you to a safer medication. Defective medication is one of the most common types of product liability cases and affects millions of people in the U.S. every year according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). If you or a loved one have been hurt by a dangerous drug, talk to a product liability attorney about recovering damages for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
